For Love Alone / Fruits for Diabetes Patients / Friday: No School (Holiday)

We all share
a Beautiful Light.

It glows
soft as candle Light.
And,
it exists
for Love Alone.

It can never
be seen,
only felt.

“We have seen His Glory,
the Glory of the One and Only…
In Him was Life,
and Life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness,
but the darkness
has not understood it”
John 1:14 a,4,5

To find answers to our questions
of meaning,

the meaning of this Life,
we are compelled to venture forth
on an exploration of consciousness,
a Philosophical journey

into the mind of the
Heart.

A Love story within a Love story.

Each of us
longs to abandon the Life
we seemingly have led for years,
to embark upon an enthralling
adventure
that few have known –
an adventure that will take us
on a Journey
to the very Heart
of ourselves.

All the while,
we have unknowingly lived
in a Beautifully crafted,

well acted Love story,
within a Love story.
This tale
is of the pursuit of Love

and a passion to truly live this Life,
against all odds.
This story,
is our story,
enfolded within
the Beautiful Story
of God’s Love
for us.

                    Unknowingly.

My Dear Friends,
we are able
to transform the pain of Life
into ecstatic Beauty.
Pain is easy to portray,
but we can use our passion for Living,
and our longing for Love,
to ease our pain,
to portray the ecstasy and the Joy
and the magnificence of our World.

Only when you are lost
can you truly find yourself.

And if you keep looking,
you will find yourself,
in the Love you encounter
through the eyes of
another.

Inevitably we ask,
what should be done

with all the time that lies ahead of us,
open and unsure and unshaped?

Our existential journey
can find us venturing forth
into the great unknown
of the Human Heart
that beats within,
but for another.

               Beautifully crafted.

The way in which we Humans
move in and out of one another’s Lives,
has an unknown and profound effect.
Very much like moments
when the Sundown
pales the sky,
and there’s barely a breath of Life
left in this day.

Yes,
as a thing of Beauty
moves in and out
of our Lives,
the effect can be
profound.

Life is a succession of moments,
when we can discover
all the Beauty
that daily comes and goes.
And,
in discovering this Beauty
in the people all around us,
and in the Beautiful World
that surrounds us,
we come to know
who we are,
and what we really want.

“For the beauty of the Earth,
For the beauty of the skies
For the Love which from our birth
Over and around us lies.

For the beauty of the hour
Of the day and of the night
Hill and vale and tree and flower
Sun and moon and stars of light.

Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our Joyful hymn of Praise
For the Joy of Human Love
Brother, sister, parent, child
Friends on earth and friends above
For all gentle thoughts and mild
Lord of all, to thee we raise
This our Joyful Hymn of Praise
For each perfect Gift of Thine
To our race so freely given
Graces Human and Divine
Flowers of Earth
and buds of Heaven.”
Folliott S. Pierpoint

We can experience
a true feeling of Peace,
that persists even in the reality of our troubles,
that transforms our quiet desperation
into a Beautiful calmness.

Let us thank God
for Life,
and for bringing
the Beauty of Love
into it.
Let us Pray for everyone –
that we may see
the Light of their precious lives
and all the Beauty
that dwells within.

May your dreams become reality,
and may your Life be filled
with God.

Goodnight.

“THE GREATEST WORKS OF ART OF ALL,

  It’s all one Big work of ART ALL AROUND US,
AND WE ARE IT’S CROWN.
